We will start our time together with a brief check-in. You will then be given an opportunity to select a few Sacred Stones to accompany your session. Once you are on the healing table we will begin with a breathing exercise. You will state your intention for healing, well-being, wholeness and expanding consciousness out loud and then a guided meditation will take you on a sound healing journey.

Messages from the Crystal Singing Bowls begin with the Angel Bowl, then move on to the Unconditional Love Bowls, the Clearing/Lifting/Surrender Bowl, Activation Bowl, the Universal Messenger Bowl, and the 2-closing bowls will carry the sound current on for eternity. The space will continue to reverberate, and you will be invited to experience silence for 5-20 minutes. During this time, I will shower you with more Light. After the session is completed, we will spend time debriefing the experience.

The Blessing - A Sacred Sound Ceremony

The Blessing - the Art of Receiving

The Blessing, A Sacred Sound Ceremony

This is Carolyn’s signature sound healing ceremony. The Blessing is an invitation to practice the art of receiving.  It is about self-care and self-love, feeling relaxed, nourished, clear your energy fields, and drink in the vibrations of healing sounds.

An ancient chant will awaken your abundant heart, deepen your connection to your creator, expand your fields of blessings, and allow your heart to radiate more love. As your energy fields open, you will receive more light, you will feel more love. Most people feel lighter, brighter, and more radiant after a sacred sound ceremony.  It is a holy and sacred experience, it connects you to the oneness of your divinity, where you are one with creation. It is a heart centered and compassionate meditative experience.

Labyrinth Walk and Mini-Sound Session

Grateful Heart Labyrinth Walk and Mini Sound Healing Session.Walking a Labyrinth with focused intention is an exercise in Contemplation and Mindfulness.

The Grateful Heart Labyrinth is 32’ in diameter with 5 turns on each side. The center is anchored by a White Swamp Oak and the strength and power this tree emits is incredibly powerful.

Some people walk the Labyrinth barefoot to ground into Earth energy. The meditative walk may take 10-15 minutes or up to an hour or more. The pace is up to you. You may choose to pause at each turn, write in a journal, or be quiet with your thoughts and appreciate the inner silence. Once you reach the center you can decide if you want to sit on one of the two benches and take in nature, or you can stare and reflect on the Blue Spruce Pine Trees and natural sounds around you.

After the Labyrinth walk, you will go into the Sacred Sound Chamber for a mini-sound healing experience.

A Message from Carolyn

My energy work is completely immersive. For many people it feels like they are attending a mini-retreat. The environments, both indoor and outdoor, are intentionally created, cultivated, uplifted and beautiful. Our home is named The House of Joy, our land is named Healing Places and Spiritual Spaces and the healing space is called the Sacred Sound Chamber. 

Sometimes clients choose both a Sacred Sound Healing appointment and a Nature therapy experience on the land. That’s why the Sacred Sound Offerings come in a variety of options. 

Sacred Sound and our land work together in tandem. While in the Sacred Sound Chamber a variety of Sound Healing Tools like Crystal Singing Bowls, Tuning Forks, Drums, Vocal Toning and Chants may help release stuck energy from your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual life force energy. After the energy debris is released, the sound waves will help raise your vibration because you now have “more room” internally to magnetize more of what you want in your life. Sacred Sound acts like an antenna, where you are able to fine tune the frequency or radio station you want to dial into. 

Even a brief encounter with our Nature Therapy experiences helps to boost your healing, overall well-being, sense of feeling balanced and grounded. As our time together comes to an end, we will wrap up with a conversation about your experience. 

I love the debrief sharing portion of my time with my clients: the insights shared, visions and expanding awareness about their awakened levels of consciousness are so inspiring. I am honored and feel gratitude to be a witness to the light that ignites within and then radiates out into their lives. 

The Heart of Gateways to Brilliance

Gateways to Brilliance experiences allow us to move from one state of consciousness to the next. It allows us to make a choice, are we moving toward something, away from something or into something.

Brilliance is about expressing your most light-filled self and sharing that with the world. It is a courageous act. When we accept our brilliance, we awaken our sacred purpose and divine potential. We become radiators of love, grace, peace, joy, and beauty.

For centuries sacred ceremonies and blessings have been used to mark new beginnings and transitions such as weddings, births, and deaths. My transformational ceremonies are a modernized version of an age-old practice. I work with light and invite sacred sound to be the vibrational guidance system that transports us through gateways to higher consciousness. We all deserve to feel the richness of a Blessing experience.

The purpose is to cultivate conscious environments, both inner and outer, by integrating the techniques, tools and principles of Sound Healing, Feng Shui, Space Clearing, Blessing Traditions, Mindfulness, Meditation and Light that support personal transformation. (READ MORE)

Reduce Your Stress and Feel Renewed with a Crystal Singing Bowl Healing Meditation

This is a wonderful way to reduce stress and restore calm into your life. It is a beautiful gift that demonstrates an investment in self-care and self-love. Many first-time clients are referred or gifted a session.

Sound Healing is an ancient technique that invites you to experience deep states of relaxation, inner peace and may create opportunities for expanded states of awareness.

Sound as a Healing Modality allows your brain to entrain or synchronize to the sound tools being used for your session. It may change your brainwaves from an active Beta state to a more relaxed meditative brainwave state of Alpha or Theta.

Sound Healing offers many benefits by lowering stress, decreases mood swings, lowers blood pressure, lowers cholesterol levels, teaches pain management, and lowers the risk for coronary artery disease and stroke and improves sleep.

A Sound Healing Session may include the singing of an Ancient Chant, Crystal Singing Bowls, Tibetan Bowls, Ting Sha’s, Tuning Forks and Drums.

After a Sound Healing Session, you will feel lighter, brighter, and more radiant.

Gently and lovingly escorts you to heaven

The Blessing was one of the most sacred ceremonies that I have ever experienced.  From a purely physical standpoint it eradicated my stress and I was washed with love and light.  From a spiritual standpoint, concepts of “God” and “Light” were transformed to “Being”.
